FORT MYERS, Fla. (May 19, 2016) – WCI Communities has begun renovations to the 27-hole championship golf course and Golf Clubhouse at Pelican Preserve, the 55-and-better lifestyle community in Fort Myers.
The Heron course is scheduled to close in June for a complete renovation of its nine putting greens, including collars and green surrounds. The Egret and Ibis courses will be subject to brief, scheduled closures for regular summer maintenance.
Members and players returning in the fall will find Pelican Preserve’s Chip Powell-designed course refreshed and ready for a new season and a newly renovated Golf Clubhouse.
WCI selected Naples interior design firm Clive Daniel Hospitality for updates to dining venues and common areas in the 24,485-square-foot clubhouse.
Clubhouse renovations beginning on the lower level will introduce a new indoor/outdoor covered patio for alfresco dining. Enclosing the patio off the second level will double seating in the full-service, members-only dining room. Pelican Preserve’s Golf Clubhouse amenities also include a banquet room and a state-of-the-art fitness center with spa treatment rooms.
“With our summer renovations, our goal is to provide our members improved playability and a great casual yet contemporary after-golf experience,” said Pelican Preserve General Manager Joe Smith.
Pelican Preserve’s 70,000-square-foot Town Center, Plaza del Sol, offers nearly every imaginable activity – from indoor fitness and swimming, to arts and crafts studios and a 99-seat theater. Dining options include the casually elegant Destinations restaurant and Flip Flops, the new poolside bar. Outdoor amenities include a resort-style pool, a new lap pool, tennis, softball and pickleball.
Pelican Preserve is one of the first residential communities in the nation awarded the Gold Seal of Sustainability from Audubon International’s Sustainable Development program. In addition to sidewalks and walking trails, the community includes 38 pristine acres set aside for an observation boardwalk and nature preserve.
Pelican Preserve offers homebuyers Chateau and Cottage Homes, Villas, Carriage Homes, Grand Villas and Classic Homes to suit every taste and lifestyle starting from the high-$100,000s. Several Dream Ready Homes are available for immediate or near-immediate move-in, and furnished models are open daily.
Pelican Preserve is located minutes from I-75 just south of Colonial Boulevard on Treeline Avenue. The welcome center and models are open daily.
